Collectively  Building

The Back Story

I will give my Uncle Bob credit for getting me into model making way back in the late 70s. He was then a sales representative for Parker Brothers and suggested to my parents that they get an airplane model for me as a Christmas gift.  A Hurricane, a Bf109 and a B-17G were my first kits. Others followed through the 1980s and I started developing a "Stash" when a local model shop opened up only a decent walk from where I had a part-time job.
Having kids stalled the build process for part of the 1990s as my focus was on them for a time but as they got older and I got some spare time again, I returned to building and collecting 1/48th scale aircraft.
